child sex trafficking

The Local Take on WCLK has covered sex trafficking issues from the beginning as part of our engagement with the community. I spoke with Shawn Smash-Jett of Wealthy Divas and Shoptalk with Shay about her role as an activist against human trafficking. Shawn shares with our listeners that she attended the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Global Summit held this month in Washington, DC.  She was there when the federal government shut down BackPage.com a site used to facilitate sex trafficking.

Atlanta is a hub for child sex traffickers and for those who use children. This is a sad fact. Many of us come into contact with exploited kids in our neighborhoods, our schools and our community each day. How can you tell if a child being trafficked? What are the warning signs, and what can you do to help end this scourge?
